I heard so many stories of people getting divorced after winning a big jackpot.I wonder how many times it's because after winning millions you just want your freedom to do as you please after being dependant on the other for so long or because with all that new money you realize you can do alot better than what you have?

What would you do?This question is not for single people.Boxing

    I don't have one, but I checked "I would never leave my soulmate" because if someone is really my soulmate, money would never separate us.  I've been single for so long that I doubt I could ever adjust to living with another person. I already have the freedom you are talking about, just not the money!!  That's why I take lots of walks...they don't cost anything!  I don't think solitude is necessarily synonymous with freedom.  You can have a significant other and still do the things you like if 2 people respect each other.  IMHO if people divorce after a jackpot win, the problems were already there when they were poor, but they just couldn't afford to break up!

        Winning might help me get my soul-mate...or maybe I'm just being foolish.

          Ah your right smartie pants..I shouldn't have used the word,"soulmate",maybe just partner or something.And maybe yes,problem's might have been there beforehand in some cases,but sometimes winning lots of money just might create a new problem that never existed before.

                "What would you do?This question is not for single people."

                There has been several stories in the LP News about jackpot winners who were single and had a mate for several years, they just never got around to making it legal.  Does a mate that you've shacked up with for a while qualify as a soulmate even if he/she doesn't have any legal right?

                  I know a lot of married women, whose  husbands make a lot of money, but don't like being married anymore, they would leave in a hearbeat  if they won the lottery.

                    The only way anyone would leave their spouse or significant other after winning is because their relationship was not that strong in the first place.  My husband is the only person I would trust actually because we had no lottery together and stuck with it so when we win, it will be ours together.  20 plus years and still going strong.

                      I am single so I would want to stay single if I won the lottery. I've waited too long to win, so I don't want to share it with a boyfriend. I would finally be able to have more financial independence.

                        When ever you date someone it's probably because they have something you like, good looks, a nice body, good manners, maybe even a good education with the the potentials to make something of themselves.  Why shouldn't the fact that you've won a lottery jackpot be attractive to them too?  Just because someone likes that you have money doesn't mean you have to like them also if they aren't attractive to you.

                          There are alot of people that I haven't dated because the compatibility wasn't there.

                            When I win the MM or PB jp, the only thing that will change will be the money in my bank accounts and my financial statements.

                              I Agree!  There's not enough money in any jackpot to make me even think of not sharing it with my soulmate. I was lucky to find her and I would not trade her for any amount.

                              And one more thought... If you are lucky enough to find the right one, then you are already rich beyond all expectations.
